Without any legislative action or consultation of Congress, The People's branch of the government, by executive order The Pentagon released plans over Thanksgiving weekend detailing the future fate of American streets. As 20,000 troops will be deployed to guard over streets in major cities and rural areas across the nation, the question begs whether there is any way to stop such a violation of the Constitution and the Posse Comitatus Act.
After protesters were shot with "non-lethal" rubber bullets and tased for merely standing on the street outside the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota, earlier this year, it appears that now the federal government, with dictatorial powers, can do simply whatever it wants.
Radio talk-show host Alex Jones discussed the matter last night with George Noory on Coast to Coast AM.
Usually, Americans see newspaper shots of cameoflauged troops on streets of cities like Havana, Port-au-Prince, Islamabaad, Shanghai, and other nations where the federal authorities play an increasingly intervening role in the daily bustle of the streets. The fact that this third-world situation is coming true in America is highly disturbing. Plans for an expansion of this security force in the future appear likely, with 20,000 as the floor, the ceiling of how many it may encompasses, perhaps even 1,000,000 has been suggested by some.
But until a further expansion is made, get ready Americans to see troops patrolling your local block; they will be there to let us know, there is a price to pay for "domestic security" from terrorism. And that price, the loss of freedom, is a sensitively dear catastrophe for this great nation.
